Join Tesla Coils on Their Journey to Help a Dinosaur Floating Through Space "Find What He's Looking For"
Amidst a long career of '80's inspired industrial synthesizers, quirky, at times, almost horror movie-like lyricism and electrifying, memorable live performances, Gold Coast's beloved Tesla Coils bring us one of their longest standing live-set additions, DINOSYNTH. Alongside standout animation from newcomer and friend of the band, Peter Anthony, the standout track is met with a stunning cartoon-ish visual element, giving the already complex story and arrangement a whole new level of meaning. Watch the dinosaur fight his way past enemies and rekindle with a loved one as growling synthesizers guide his journey to mark his place through the vastness of the galaxies and space. Standing as a fantastic metaphor for the complexities of human emotion, DINOSYNTH finds its way into all of our playlists, and we expect it to make its way into yours too.
On the concept, the mastermind behind the Tesla Coils project, Jed Wølters states;
“Dinosynth is a whimsical journey with a deeper meaning” exclaims Jed, “…despite its obviously sci-fi-based lyrics about a cyborg dinosaur floating through space, the song is actually about my own experiences with isolation and that feeling that you are alone in the universe. Even though I am comfortable being on my own a lot of the time, it does get lonely sometimes, especially if you feel like you’re a different kind of organism to humans. I guess I want this song to be an anthem to sci-fi lovers and people who suffer loneliness alike.”
Reminscent of all of your favourite '80's electronic acts, the newbie from the kings of industrial features the genre-beloved Linndrum. On the tech, Jed states,
"I have a modest collection of vintage analog synthesizers and drum machines. Basically I just plug them all in, start layering sounds, and let the chaos reign. As per usual with my sound mission-statement, I want you to imagine it was tracked in 1984 in a loft apartment overlooking Kreuzberg, on a tape machine that’s been left out in the sun a bit too long.”
After a string of shows including sets at BIGSOUND FESTIVAL, Dead of Winter Festival, Wallapalooza Festival as well as supporting the one and only Peter Murphy (UK) on his 30 Years of Bauhaus Tour as well as taking out the 2017 Gold Coast Music Awards for Breakout Artist of the Year, we cannot wait to see where the band takes us, themselves, and intergalactic prehistoric giants next!
